this whole post will probably be TMI (just a fair warning)
DF and I were talking today and I plan on calling my OB next week to make an appointment to get my Mirena IUD out. Then I got to thinking and I remember my OB telling me, when she put it in, that I should be able to take it out myself. So I watched a couple videos and read some things on-line about taking it out myself. Once I felt like I was confident that I could do it, I gave it a shot. Well I could NOT find my dang cervix for the life of me! So I finally had DF come back and he tried. and he had trouble finding it too. we tried several positions. We finally located the string of the IUD but it was so far up that neither of us could get a grip on the strings. We tried for an hour...(talk about a waste of time) and finally gave up.
This has me a little frustrated because I read that if you grab the string and pull it should just come out super easy...so the fact that that wasn't the case was frustrating....then I got to thinking, I remember from back when TTC our daughter that cervical position does a lot to tell where you are at in your cycle. So I did a little research and was refreshed that a really high soft cervix means you are the most fertile....so that then makes me wonder if I'm ovulating or getting ready to. The things about that though, is according to the app I have on my phone, I am still about 1 week away from ovulation. but my last period was only 2 days so I'm not even sure how accurate that is. oy, I think I just confused myself even more.
I'm pretty much wondering if it is a strong possibility that I'm so close to ovulation even after being on the IUD for 4.5 years now?? and is that why my darn cervix is almost impossible to reach right now!
that was a rambled mess, but I was really disappointed I couldn't get the IUD out tonight cause that would give us 2 full months BC free before we TTC again....which would give my cycles time to regulate a little bit.
If anyone actually through that whole thing I really appreciate it!
